Why Should We Vote for Harding...
jP'OXJE.years ago at the occasion of the presidential election
openly in a plain spoken manner and with a sincere determmati
fjn we fought againts the reelection of Wilson. We did not believe
"flis promises, no matter with what professional superiority he spoke,
J&re did not trust in his strength and his good intentions, to conduct
Ills second term along lines of peacful and constructive policies. And
four years age we had &ippje reason to fight Wilpou, we Jjave

us out of war" but, on the contrary, after two years have passed
since the armistice,, he1 |id not restore peace far the ^people of
Uncle Sam. v
For the sake of the completeness of our ínclepénűéüce—Wé did
not permit ourselves to be bound into the service of any party policy.
Unfettered we go our ways and desire nothing but to serve the wel
fare of this blessed land and the great interests of America now,
too, when we advise those of our blood brethren who have become
citizens of this republic:—to help with their votes the election of
Harding, on November 2nd,
"Wilson has lost the'ba#e as' in tiuropét he *as
a peerless gentleman when "promises were in order, none of which
he was able to materialize. Where are to-day the soap bubbles of the
famous fourteen points,what remained of the smooth phrase tliat
lie would "make the world safe for democracy?" Nothing but the
bitter, nauseating aftertaste of great, miserable disappointments.
He remained in the public debt with all his promises, all his political
credit was reversed into bankruptcy and those policies which are
crystallized in his person, which are tottering under the heritage
of his political sins would be bound for dismal failure even in the
event if a much smaller personage than,Harding ^yould be his
opponent. But the republican candidate is big enough as a man,
conspicuous enough as a Stateman to make the American people
entrust him to become the steersman, of its Ship of State.
The election of the democratic1 candidate Co* would mea$ the
continuation of the Wilson régime the victory at the polls of Cox
would herald a victory of Wison and would testify to the fact that
America would place the seal of its approval upon the second four
years of Wilson's presidency. This is why Cox must fail:—America
is in sore need of years of peace, of prosperity America's calling
has at no time been so overwhelmingly important world history,
as at the present moment when'the terrible mistakes of Wilson are
up for correction—and because such cannot be expected of Cox
who has sworn to be Wilson's shadow, and furthermore, because
all primary conditions necessary for peace, prosperity and a loyal
return to American traditions can at this time be voushsafed only
by a republican victory—we, from a true heart, from sincere con*
viction recommend to our brethren who haVe become American
citizens—to vote for Harding on November 2nd.
At every step Harding reminds one of the MeKinley type. A
simple, true American, like his puritan ancestors in whom human
virtues vie in harmony with statemanlike values. Democratic in
his every bone, the great and majestic principle of government of
the people has saturated his being to a much bigger extent than to
make us fear a repetition of the Wilson "one man rule" in the
event of his election. The American people opens the gates of the
White House to Harding in the noonday of an unblemished, worka
day life and what he carries there with him #f his past and his me
mories, together with his sturdy manhood, his constructive strength
of statemanship and tlie crystal clearness of his purposes—all this
.speaks well for the fact that Harding's was the happy selection of
a worthy man by the American people. It k not only the Repub
lican party that rallies around him, but in the lines stuggling for
his election you will find many thousands of democrats and prog
ressives as well:—the election of Harding will signify the triumph
of true, clean and honest Americanism and thus his victory means
no longer the consummation of party interest alone, but in a broader
sense that of national welfare. 1MÍ*'
Americans of Hungarian race must be thankful to/ America—
the fact, however, that we are good Americans, devoted and true
sons of Uncle Sam, not only does not exclude, but directly demands
that we remember gratefully, lovingly, with a willingness to bring
sacrifices, our bruised motherland, poor orphaned Hungary. Hard
ing's candidacy signals peace iarid prosperity for America hts
attitude towards the League of Nations promises a possibility that,
the crimes of the unjust, inhuman, blackguardly peace policy of
Europe may be corrected: therefore let every American Hungarian
citizen vote for Warren G. Harding on the second day of November.
